Schema offers design, drafting and rendering services custom tailored for your residential, small scale commercial and bespoke design projects. Specializing in single family residential design, Schema are also experts in renovations, interior design, landscape design and art consultation. We bring decades of custom design experience to each and every project, and will provide innovative responses to the challenges that are inherent within them.


We are adept at any style, and have executed projects from the low millions to several million dollars, in several municipalities in the lower mainland. This includes prestigious areas such as Shaughnessy, Kitsilano and Kerrisdale. Projects range from 3,500 to over 16,000 square feet. We have a comprehensive understanding of local zoning and building bylaws, and are conscientious in utilizing  them to the design's advantage. We treat each and every project as if it is our own.

Since every project is unique, Schema will work with you to determine the best plan of action.
